The former PDP Presidential aspirant also urges wealthy Nigerians to share with less privileged “and to provide for the millions of families across the nation who cannot celebrate this year’s Sallah with the usual festivities due to the rising cost of food.
“Let us also pray for those who are commemorating this Sallah without their loved ones — including families with abducted members. Let us pray that those in captivity will soon be reunited with their families and friends” he added.
“As we all adhere to the values of our religion, it is my deepest prayer that those that are fortunate amongst us will share with those that are in need at this time.
“May Almighty Allah bless, guide, and protect you and your family.”
